Veteran Nollywood Actor Dies After Long Battle With Kidney-Related Ailment



Actor, Ojo Arowosafe, also known as Fadeyi Oloro in the Nollywood movie industry has died.

Arowosafe, who hails from Ekiti state died at the age of 66.

The actor while alive was popular for being a diabolical antagonist.

He died on Tuesday afternoon after a long battle with kidney-related ailments, among other things.

Only last month, Arowosafe through his daughter on an Instagram live session with popular OAP Daddy Freeze, begged Nigerians for help after the actor was served a six-month eviction notice over unpaid rent.

Subsequently, UK-based Nigerian pastor Tobi Adegboyega of Salvation Proclaimers Anointed Church, donated N3 million for Arowosafe’s treatment and other outstanding bills.

The thespian rose to prominence during the 80s and late 90s for his trademarked herbalist character.

Arowosafe was born on September 15, 1957, in Igbara Odo, Ekiti, and became a household name during the cinematic era for his antagonistic roles in Yoruba movies accompanied by his ever-vibrant recitation of chants and incantations.

Confirming his death, actor and comedian, Bayegun Oluwatoyin aka Woli Arole, via his Instagram account wrote, “So happy I reached out to you sir, so happy we played our part, so happy we laughed together, so happy we were able to show our support. Rest in Peace the Legend ‘Fadeyi Oloro’.

“Let’s check up on people when dey (they) are alive, Let’s show love when people can feel. Let’s help when it can be seen.”
